The Estill County High School Marching Engineers showed a lot of improvement over ealier competitions this season when they traveled to Hazard to compete Saturday.
“It was a much better performance this week than last week,” Estill Band Director Jason Bowles said. “We took second place in our class and placed fifth over all out of 16 bands.”
“In both visual captions the judges had us first overall out of every band there. It’s clear that the main focus this week will be music. That is where our scores seem to be consistantly lower than they should be at this point in the season. The silver lining is that with a few changes here and there and a bit more attention to detail usually results in a five point jump. Our goal for next week is a distinguished rating,” Bowles said.
Estill will go up against Hart County and McCreary Central next Saturday at South Laurel County High School in London.
